RE: Renting RV Late Dec. - Phoenix-Denver...All Routes Unsafe?

A winter trip is possible with a lot of luck and careful planning. I sometimes use my RV in the winter for fishing trips. First winterize the water tank and lines, you won't be using them. Instead I use water from the square blue jugs with spigots. They can be set on the counter and used just like faucets. We also take showers from a bucket with a little electric shower pump that my wife found. The toilet can be flushed with some water from a bucket. Pour a lot of anti-freeze down into the waste tanks and dump them as soon as possible. Such a trip is totally weather-dependant. I don't drive my RV in the mountains during snow. Miles

RE: Global Warming

It is amazing how small a picture that some people have of the world. They think that because it is cold where they are that global warming is a hoax. They don't know and probably don't want to know that right now in Fairbanks it is 27 degrees. Miles . . . And in Barrow it is 31

RE: Winterization

Anything below 32 is too cold. I would winterize it every time you bring it back. If you are handy with a compressor it doesn't take very long and the peace of mind is worth it. I also fill the lines with anti-freeze. Miles

Great job. By the way, how do you like that Edelbrock? Miles

RE: Beware when camping in Hastings, Nebraska

What the other respondents say is true. But based on Steve's posts about this campground and its management, I will most definitely find a different place to camp the next time I am in the Hastings area. Miles

RE: Adding a Fan Speed Control to my Range Hood

I also installed a PWM on the vent fan in my bathroom. They are marvelous little gadgets with many applications. Miles

RE: Lake Ouachita Honeymoon!

Congratulations on starting the greatest adventure of your lives. Our marriage also started with a camping trip 30 years ago. I hope that the coming years are as happy for you as they have been for us. Miles

RE: RMNP

Moraine Park is the best campground in RMNP, hands down. IMHO. We always stay in spots that are on the south side. Miles

RE: 1990 Holiday Rambler Crown Imperial 37

. . . But they aren't all dead. Some of them are still around although they do require life support. Any coach does no matter how young or old. HR's are elegant, well-made coaches and even one that's 25 years old can still give good service. Miles

RE: Colorado Indecision--Where to go this week?

How long have you been in Colorado? We are also transplants (30 years). All of the outdoor locations and facilities along the Front Range are subject to heavy use by the public and things are fairly tightly-regulated. The best campgrounds are booked 6 months in advance. Expect it to get even worse as the Front Range continues to grow. Closed usually means gated. The options for dispersed camping along the Front Range are limited. Go to the individual Forest websites to get current info on open locations. Call the office for the Forest you intend to go to and talk to someone to check your information before you go. Making a mistake could lead to a citation and a fine. Before we bought the HR we used to have a '72 Winnebago Indian. I could drive that thing up many jeep roads. One of our favorite campgrounds was Rainbow Lakes outside of Nederland. I would suspect that Rainbow lakes is probably closed by now, but you could check. We have also camped in some dispersed camping spots west of Red Feather Lakes. The campground up there at Dowdy Lake is open year-round. Every one has their favorite places and you need to book them months in advance. You should also start looking farther afield. For you I would suggest Withers Canyon Trailhead at Picketwire Canyon south of La Junta (Comanche National Grasslands). It might remind you of places you have camped at in Arizona. It is close enough for a week-end. Be sure to visit the dinosaur track site. (I like to use a mountain bike to get there from the campsites.) We also like to go fishing and camping in the Flat Tops. If you are willing to drive for 3 hours you can get to places that don't see as much pressure. Enjoy your new state! Miles

RE: FIRST TIME RV-ER QUESTIONS

It's understandable that you have a lot of questions. Try breaking them up into different posts for each subject area once you have done some more research. I can tell you that if you have difficulty affording your apartment it will be very difficult for you to afford a motorhome. My HR was in great condition when I bought it but I have already had to put as much into it as I paid for it after only 5 years. You are probably going to pay at least 15K for a (newer) older unit with a slide. Is that in your price range? I do wish you good luck on your new endeavor. Miles

RE: What Kind Of Tool Kit Do You Carry?

Ever tow a pop-up behind your class A?

I'm planning a trip for 6 of us in our HR including my 95 year-old mother and 3 adult children. There are not enough beds in the coach and none of us is willing to sleep on the ground in a tent anymore. I'm considering towing a small pop-up for an extra bedroom and storage space. Have any of you done this and how did it work out? Thanks; Miles

Re: Yellowstone campsites rated 30' or less

We are planning a trip to Yellowstone next year. We are planning to take a circular route that will include stays at Fishing Bridge, Canyon, Tower Falls, Mammoth, Indian Creek, Norris, Madison and Grant Village campgrounds. I find that several of these campgrounds have sites rated at 30' or less. Our HR is 34' but we usually have no trouble with many of the smaller sites we have camped at. My question is are we likely to find a site we can fit in among the sites that are rated 30' or less? or do they mean what they say when they say 30' or less?

RE: Elk Meadows IN Estes Park Co.

Moraine Park is by far the best campground in the area. Miles

RE: Holiday Rambler owners manual

There is a website classicwinnebagos.com. They have expanded their site to include all so-called classic and vintage RV's. They maintain a library and I'm sure their members would love to have a copy of your manual available. I guess even though my HR is a little newer I wouldn't mind seeing one. Send me a PM. Thanks.

RE: Onan NHE 6.5 points/condenser

As I recall, the top of the little box cap on the points is held in place by a small hex-head screw on the front, maybe one on the backside too. Use a small inspection mirror and a flashlight to be sure. Also have a magnet on your nut driver when you take it out. When I replaced the points on mine, my local John Deere dealer had them in stock. The part number is on the points. I think that you can upgrade to an electronic ignition but I haven't gotten around to it. The plug wire should go on a clip inside a rubber cap. Maybe you just pulled the wire end away from the clip. Good luck with your repairs. Miles
